St Comgall’s Church
The works at St Comgall’s Parish Church in Bangor involved the extensive refurbishment and restoration of buildings as the result of an electrical fire in June 2012. A large section of the church roof had been destroyed as a result of the fire, whilst the floor below and pews also suffered extensive damage. As the main contractor, we carried out extensive repair and renovation works, restoring the Church and its associated buildings to their former glory.
Key features and benefits:
- Felix O’Hare & Co Ltd removed all damaged fixtures and fittings and we undertook the chemical cleaning of stonework, structural columns and timbers affected by the blaze.
- We removed timber floors and all floor areas were prepped for new concrete floor slabs.
- We completely overhauled the internal space with provision of new meeting rooms, reception rooms and a new mezzanine floor. We also installed a new feature staircase and balcony, new toilets, upgraded the vestry offices, installed a baptismal pool and reconfigured the Chancel area.
- We provided a new lift facility to allow for easier access/aggress. Before handover we carried out a complete redecoration to a very high standard.
- Throughout the works, a high standard of specification was required with traditional and bespoke joinery fittings, fused with extensive use of sound insulated glass and stainless steel features such as the staircases.
- The Church and surrounding facilities were officially opened in March 2014, much to the delight of the parishioners with the design and quality of the works highly praised by all.
